Lundstams AB is one of the leading waste oil management and environmental services companies in middle Scandinavia. They deal with problems of increasing complexity as time goes on, the multiple uses of oils leading to more and more contaminants and those of different types.
When you combine the increasing complexity of impurities with more natural contaminants like water and sand they ended up dealing with ever-increasingly complex emulsions of water and oil. These complex combinations of water and oil, along with other additions, led to an increasing need for more complex systems.
While the original process consisted of collecting tanks, heating tanks, filter systems, and high-speed centrifuges from Alfa Leval it had something of a limited capacity for treatment. With frequent filter changes adding up and some waste oils needing to be run through the system multiple times in order to achieve a viable oil quality.
This greatly limited the amount of oil which could be treated at any one time and took considerable amounts of logistic ingenuity and time to manage.
Recondoil’s solution was to rebuild the facility in order to incorporate their unique technology and see if things couldn’t be made to look up a little bit. This included a decanter which utilized double separation technology(or DST).
This decanter was designed to help eliminate the huge amounts of sludge and water which contaminated the oil, in order to help Lundstams AB increase the quantity of oil which they would be able to reprocess.
Minimizing the water and sludge contamination on the first pass through of the oils was the goal, and the results would seem to speak for themselves.
Amazing Efficiency Increases
The increased efficiency resulting from this addition to the flow of the waste oil treatment plant was nothing short of miraculous. The processing flow of the plant has increased by 500%.
This means that Lundstams AB can now process literally five times the amount of oil which they were able to treat before. That’s definitely not a small number in the great scheme of things.
Lundstams AB can now process literally five times the amount of oil which they were able to treat before.
It also brought down the amount of true waste which had to be removed from the facility, making things look pretty good for the company overall, since it also saved them money on having to transport and dispose of the waste.
The company’s reputation has improved as a result. If you have oils which are notoriously hard to clean in that part of the world, you send them to Lundstams AB. Their facilities can now handle it extraordinarily well.When it comes to results, Recondoil’s technology speaks for itself. 500% efficiency increases. Less time and money spent disposing of waste. And a newfound reputation as the place to send your hard to clean oils.
